Talking to Kids About Racism

To show our support for anti-racism and Black Lives Matter, we have chosen to share the insight of Dr. Howard Stevenson, a clinical psychologist and professor at the University of Pennsylvania who has spent 30 years studying how parents raise their kids to think about race. The link below will take you to an article from Vox where Dr. Stevenson talks to journalist Anna North about how we can discuss racism with our kids. https://www.vox.com/identities/2020/6/9/21283715/how-to-talk-kids-racism-race-protests

Here are a few more articles where you can find specific recommendations for books and other resources to help educate yourself and have these difficult, yet necessary, conversations with your kids.
